Plenary teaching is conducted primarily in lecture theatres, either on the main campus in the city centre or at the John Bull Building, depending on which year is being taught. However, they can be organised to accommodate a provider's ideas and strategy for teaching specific subjects. Workshops, in particular, are open to a variety of formats. Teaching leads are always happy to discuss the most effective way of delivering learning objectives to students. Your teaching material can be made available to students again at a later date via their online learning environments.
Who can get involved? All, depending on subject taught
Volunteers are required for student entrance interviews. These are held in December and February.
